The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is monitoring an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a new coronavirus, named Coronavirus Disease 2019 or COVID-19, which has spread to the United States. The United States is now seeing person-to-person spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Persons experiencing homelessness are more vulnerable to infectious disease due to their limited access to healthcare, their mobility, and poor health status. With any other congregate setting, there are special considerations for providers of homeless shelters and homeless service providers to help reduce the spread of infectious diseases.
Keep informed on the status of COVID-19 for your local community. The Florida Department of Health has updated information about cases in our State and Centers for Disease Control has updated information about cases in the United States.
At this time, we are asking for you to implement prevention strategies and develop plans to address your local response to COVID-19.
